UCLA, Other Academic Medical Centers Take Aim at Shortage of Geriatric Specialists
Four academic medical centers are working together to address the shortage of geriatric specialists. In 2004, the UCLA School of Medicine, the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and Duke University School of Medicine formed a consortium to provide geriatric training to doctors who teach in medical schools and residency programs. So far, the program has trained 430 medical school faculty members and 82 advanced fellows in geriatric education.
